Islamic State has challenged Prince Harry to fight the jihadis in a disturbing new extremist video.  

In the English-language clip a man who has been identified as Abu Uqayl from Singapore takes issue with the royal – who during his visit to the country spoke about terror attacks in London.

He says: ‘Why don’t you come here and fight us if you’re man enough, so that we can send you and your Apaches to hellfire?’

Prince Harry formerly served in the British Army and flew Apache attack helicopters in Afghanistan.

The royal’s visit to Singapore in June came just days after the London Bridge attack which saw a group of knife-wielding men attacking revellers in the British capital.

The jihadis killed seven people before they were gunned down by police.

Singapore’s interior ministry said it believed the person in the video was from the country. 

The Ministry of Home Affairs said in a statement: ‘Our security agencies have been aware for some time now of the presence in Syria of a Singaporean, Megat Shahdan bin Abdul Samad, 39, and have been monitoring his activities.

‘It is believed that the person in the video calling himself ‘Abu Uqayl’ is Shahdan.’

Singapore’s leaders have warned the city-state is a prime target for a terror attack because of its strong stand against terrorism and reputation as a regional financial centre.
